    Default Quiet, Reliable Residential Toe Kick heater

    We are looking for a quiet, reliable toekick heater to add to our remodeled Kitchen. The Kitchen measures roughly 23 feet 15 feet and we are looking to add two TK heaters. What are the better brands/models out there?

    Tx, Dan

    I have 3 such units in my house (hydronic), all by Embassy Industries. I would not recommend these units as the bushings fail and when they go, the fan makes a heck of a racket. Each of my units have had the bushings replaced in the 10 years I've owned them (first failed after 5 years, the last this past winter).

    On the positive side; when the bushings are fresh they are nice a quiet. Each time I've called Embassy for replacement bushings they have been good about sending replacement bushings free of charge (more then likely because they know they just don't last).
